Danilo Dessì is a Post-Doctoral Researcher/Senior Researcher at FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Institute of Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods (AIFB) with Prof. Dr. Harald Sack. He holds a Master’s degree and a Doctoral degree from the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Cagliari (Italy). His PhD thesis was supervised by Prof. Diego Reforgiato Recupero. He has been visiting researchers in the following centers all around the world: Philips Research (Eindhoven, 2016), Center for Data Science NYU (New York City, 2017), Knowledge Media Institute – The Open University (Milton Keynes, 2018), and Laboratoire d’informatique de Paris Nord – University of Paris 13 (Paris, 2019). The list of his publications are accessible on DBLP, Scopus, and Google Scholar. He is a member of the laboratory of Human-Robot Interaction HRI Lab@UNICA at the University of Cagliari (in collaboration with R2M Solution s.r.l.) whose research and development activities are dedicated to the understanding, designing, and evaluating of several robotic platforms which employ different research technologies (e.g. Sentiment Analysis, Semantic Web, Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing, etc.) when interacting with humans. His current research is funded by the MaterialDigital project whose goal is the digitalization of materials to build a powerful ontology for materials and transfer their associated processes to their manufacture into applications.
